Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Songs I still may skip....

Stella Blue?? Such a beautiful song. Never skipped it. But thanks for your honesty. Gotta respect that.

Never got Dark Star (or had Dark Star "get" me). I certainly respect the song and opinions of those who loved it. But always thought it was over-hyped after the "Warlocks" show at Hampton in Oct/'89.

I never could get into "Must've Been the Roses" - seemed less like a love song and more like a funeral number.

Minglewood - can't listen to it anymore (except some of the 77's when Garcia blistered through his solo parts).

Bob's cowboy songs - still dig Big River. Mexicali sounds like a Marty Robbins rip off.
Me and My Uncle - nice suprise that "I left his dead a** there by the side of the road". But that wears thin.

I know I will catch flack for this but "Gimmie Some Lovin'".
Yes, Phil sings on it. But maybe I heard the original too many times??? Would rather hear Phil sing "Just Like Tom Thumb Blues anyday.

May have expanded beyond this thread - thanks for reading.
